Secrecy versus collaboration

It seems that each person has an inherent bias towards either secrecy or towards collaboration. Sure, all sane people have a combination of the two abilities, but a bias as well.

And I'm not so sure it's as simple as being introverted or extroverted. After all, some people are quite outgoing and even manipulative, but nonetheless unlikely to share their inner thoughts.

Personally, I lean towards collaboration and find secrecy somewhat unnatural.

To me, secrecy feels manipulative.

Secrecy feels like it takes more effort.

Collaboration seems easier and more natural.

Secrecy seems like more of a "necessary evil".

So, the difficulty comes when we try to mix people bent on secrecy with people bent on collaboration.
